New Writing Center Resource for Graduate Students
Writing a thesis, dissertation, or final project? The University Writing Center now has an expert writing consultant ready to work with you.
This spring, Dr. Terrie Mathis has joined the Writing Center team, specifically to work with graduate students. Dr. Mathis teaches in both the English and Linguistics departments, and has experience working with graduate students on theses, and with writers whose first language is not English.
Make a 30-minute appointment to meet with her to discuss your project, thesis, or dissertation. You can work together on a range of writing issues. Just bring in a question or concern like:
- My advisor says my writing is too informal.
- My advisor says my sentence structure is hard to follow.
- How do I transition from this section to the next?
- How do I wrap up this section?
- How do I integrate my sources?
- Is my literature review well-organized?
Dr. Mathis is available in the Learning Resource Center Wednesday and Thursday afternoons. Please call (818) 677-2033 to schedule an appointment.
